I am a Professor of Inclusive Education in the Faculty of Education at the University of Ottawa. I conduct collaborative research in areas including school attendance, school inclusion/exclusion, mental health literacy, inclusive education policy, teacher preparation for inclusive education and the wellbeing of children and youth with mental health issues. I teach courses related to these topics at the B.Ed. and graduate level and supervise graduate students studying a range of related areas.


All of these efforts have the goal of improving social, emotional and academic outcomes for children and youth.
